Chavan refuses to resign over CVC issue

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, March 13 � Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan today rejected the opposition demand for his resignation on the CVC issue, saying the appointment was not related to the state government, reports PTI.

�There is no question of resigning,� he told a press conference on the eve of the Budget session of the state legislature.

Chavan said, �What the Prime Minister said over the issue has been clarified elaborately and the Central government will reply on the matter in the Lok Sabha. If the opposition raises the issue in the state legislature, I will reply to their charges. There is no question of resigning.�

The opposition in the state has demanded Chavan�s resignation and sought his apology for misleading people on the issue of appointment of the Central Vigilance Commissioner after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh indicated in the Rajya Sabha last week that Chavan was responsible for shortlisting P J Thomas for the post.
